Courtney shows you how to make a personalized gemstone paperweight - which is the perfect desktop accessory and an adorable public display of affection. These cute little trinkets are made from a kids polymer clay, which is easy to roll, sculpt, and then stamp with a sweet message. After being baked in the oven, they become hard as rocks (or, rather, gemstones). Courtney then shows you how to finish them off with a coat of gold spray paint for a sophisticated look.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Materials:
  • Sculpy clay in colors of your choice
  • Cutting board
  • Paring knife or craft knife
  • Metallic gold spray paint and latex gloves
  • Masking tape
  • Small metal alphabet stamps (optional)

This is a good idea. I will try this for a craft project later. Thank you! It would be cool to see other ways you can mold polymer clay.
